August adult newsletter
This month we are displaying our 'rubbish' as art, we introduce a brand new 3D IMAX film and invite you to a special Stranger Than Fiction event with Joan Fontcuberta.
The Rubbish Collection
Until 14 September 2014

After 30 days of collecting, sorting and documenting every item of waste from the Science Museum, artist Joshua Sofaer has transformed the gallery into an intruiging art-installation showcasing what we have thrown away. 

Visit this summer to see the bizarre and surprising items that were rescued from the bins in the first phase, and experience the wonder of ‘rubbish’ for yourself.

Find out the latest from The Rubbish Collection on our blog and check out our 'Rubbish of the Day' series on Tumblr.
